turning up the seas, so rough surf, rip current, right through the holiday weekend. and it is tropical depression no. 9 that is here in the gulf of mexico moving at two miles per hour, but it will start to lift northward, and move towards the florida coast where there are hurricane watches and tropical storm warnings up, and this will make a landfall in the gulf coast of florida sometime late on thursday and thursday night, and then from there, it will likely brush the carolinas, and it looks like it wants to head out to start to meander towards us towards labor day so watching this closely there could be rain and wind, and if it stays farther out, we'll get the impacts with the waters, but something to watch as we head into the holiday weekend. getting a little stickier out there right now. you can see the high clouds moving, in but this front off to the west, really slow to bring in showers so most of the day it will be dry, and we're starting out in the 60s to around 70 degrees, and notice over the next 12 hours, sun fades away
mid and upper 80s today, despite all the clouds, and you can see them filling in at lunchtime but during the afternoon, one or two isolated showers to the north and west, that's about it, this evening and overnight, and a better chance that we get into the showers, and that threat is with us tomorrow, as well, and we're in the 60s to around 70 degrees tonight, for overnight lows, and as we get into the day tomorrow, a lot of clouds, a couple of showers possible here, especially, as we head to the late morning hours around boston, and that shift dry things out on friday, and it's a nice start to the holiday weekend. all right, back to that situation in east boston overnight, a tough situation there. >> unfortunately, a fatal accident. two people killed in this crash that happened after 1:00, and at this point we we have got road closures in place. four others taken to the hospital and the investigation is ongoing. now to the maps and i will show you what's going on. northbound side of route 1a, at this point still shut down so if you are traveling that way it's closed, a half mile after the ted before bennington street so
in mind heading eastbound, through the ted, you are going to have to be detoured through logan airport by the 26th, is where you will get off and loop around, and to 1 actual, and if you are traveling out of the tunnel stay for logan and left for bennington street and that will put you back onto 1a. besides that we're watching delays, a crash just reported where the center lane is closed, and north of there 93 is heavy, and more delays south of town on 24. randy. randy: all right, thank you. and eyeopener two kayakers in critical condition. after being hit by a ferry on the hudson river. 10 people were injured. new york city police pulled several of them from the water. the pilot of the ferry was taking the usual route. he saw the kayakers out of the corner of his eye. he could not stop in time. no charges have been filed. >> let go of him! >> this turns out to be quite
